Hi, Can I get the source code for inverse interpolation? I need a full solution to be in C. Can anyone help?

    Accepted Solution


      This routine computes a simple root in the equation f(x)=0 using
      inverse interpolation.It is assumed that the root is is in an in-
      terval (a, b) satisfying f(a)*f(b) < 0.

    regarding your problem, to find x for some y, you have f(x)=y-L(x).

    Assisted Solution

    In general, no inverse interpolation can be made. A lot of different sets of points can interpolate into the same funtion, so inverse is not defined for that funtion in the general case.

    For instance, 2 points interpolate into a line, but a line can be inverse interpolated into ANY set of two different points inside the line... or 3 points inside the line, or 4... or a cloud of points non of it laying exactly inside the line. Infitine sets of points interpolate into the same line!
